Be careful with Botach!

They are well known in the industry for selling products they don't actually have, offering excuse after excuse as to why they cant ship the products they don't have in a reasonable time frame and fighting with customers who object to their fuckery.

Stories of people arguing with them for MONTHS over charged but un shipped items are all over the internet!

Here is what I know about Botach.

If it is in stock they will ship it and ship it fast and I have ordered a ton of stuff without a problem.

If it is out of stock do not place an order which is something I adhere to with everybody

I would estimate I have made 50+ orders without a hitch from Botach.
The one time I ordered something not in stock they did a fast credit when I had not heard anything for a couple weeks but there was little ability to actually address if and when they would have it so again, in stock GTG back order nope nope nope

Rumor has it, the expanse models are just dressed up anderson lowers with a pony slapped on the receiver.

Isn't Anderson a Colt subcontractor? [smilie=pdt_xtremez_23.gif]

Looks like the forward assist and dust cover is an extra cost option. Who woulda thunk?

FWIW I picked up a DPMS Sporter (sans FA and DC) from Academy for $499. I added some BUIS to the mix then put it back into the box unfired. Still in the box in case I ever need it. I know, I know, some folks think an AR without FA and DC is a piece of s';t. So be it.

It's also missing a chrome lined barrel!

Yep, point being- why pay for the name stamped on the side when you can go right for the cheapo brand?
